Yummy!! Italian Sub, Tom Hanks, Dean Martin, a perfect trio. Bread is fresh, meats are tasty, fresh lettuce, tomatoes, just enough condiments to keep it flavorful. Yes, we're making this our FAV!

Our first visit in 3 years, but they still make the best Italian sub I ever ate! This was our first visit to their bigger store and I'm glad its bigger and better. More room here to eat in. Very friendly staff made us feel right at home.

I had heard about this gem but did not have the pleasure of eating there until this week. Orders are placed at the counter with a charming young lady. The food is delivered to your table promptly. I have never had a more delicious sub. The roll was crisp and tasty and the eggpla at the volument hand breaded and... More

This has become one of our family staple restaurants, family owned with incredible Italian foods. It's our top take out restaurant with our favorite spaghetti and meatballs and Caesar salad with great bread. We'll meet and split a large sandwich for lunch. You know it's a great place when you find our law enforcement gathering to eat. They are always... More

When I visit Piccolo's I feel like I'm back in The Bronx or Manhattan when I was growing up. This place has the most authentic Italian selections you can find. My wife would be beside herself if we couldn't get Scungili and Piccolo's has it. Their deli sandwiches are delissio and their bread is fabulous. Try their pizza as well,... More

Everything you love about an Italian deli and market, including the aroma of home made sauce, pizzas, meatballs, lasagna and more, right here in Gulf Gate! Lunchtime subs, pizza slices and cold cuts are fresh sliced, with sides of pasta or a variety of salads. There is a whole section of imported cheeses, olives, dry pastas, vinegars, and olive oils...

This is my " go to" Italian store for my favorite Parmesan Cheese. Customers are lined up at the deli counter for all of their take out foods. Men particularly like their extensive menu and I would suggest letting them serve their regulars at noon, if you are just going for a few items. Enjoy the Italian experience right in... More
